Want to know more about this delightfully quirky book? (I don’t know why you wouldn't want to pick this one up for the cover alone. There’s a top hat and a monocle for goodness sake!) Read more to find out!
This is one of those books that you just can't put down because it's such a foreign way of life, such a different way of seeing the world, that you find it fascinating. The Cresswells are a fanatic religious family, and we meet them at point where the children are old enough to start questioning their father's motives while leading his family.
The way to Alexandra's heart is through a great book recommendation.
